We live locally and had never done a boat trip from Lulworth. It was great to see Durdle Door from the other side. The only slightly disappointing thing, I assumed that the boat would slow and potter around for a couple of minutes down at Durdle Door, but it simply turns and heads back. I have read though that this... More

Exactly what we were looking for. £20 for a family of 4 so it's not going to break the bank. Speeding across the waves was fun for the kids, the scenery was stunning obviously. Quick turn around for photos at Durdle Door and back for ice cream. Sorted. Queuing was a little chaotic, can't imagine that would be fun at... More

Boat trip from Lulworth Cove to a good view of Durdle Door from the sea. Get a reserve ticket from person by a table under umbrella on beach so when boat comes back you have a place reserved, as boat takes very limited number of people and it is very popular. Fantastic trip - good for all ages. Even on... More

We took the boat for a 1.5hr private charter along the Jurassic coast and it was brilliant to see the coastline from a different perspective. Our captain was experienced and knew a lot about the sights along the coast. The RIB boat goes very fast on the water, which certainly got our adrenaline pumping as we bounced along the sea.... More

Really great experience and stunning view! Unfortunately the ride is only 15min, but it is worth it! So much great emotions and feeling of speed. Great experience! Thank you Lulworth RIB rides! :)

Not a lot to say on this, apart from brilliant, the lady & guy who drive the boat were very friendly & helpful. Its a great way to see the Jurassic coastline & Durdle Door from the sea. Enjoyed the boat trip very much, definitely the highlight of our holiday :-)

The boat trip itself was a real highlight of our holiday - fast and furious and it felt genuinely exciting speeding over the sea towards Durdle Door. However when we got there the boat didn't even slow down, it just turned around at speed and came straight back, leaving those who were expecting to look at Durdle Door disappointed. I've... More

Hi Jim, glad you enjoyed the boat ride and I thought you may appreciate a response... We really wish it was possible to offer more time at Durdle Door but the boat weighs over 3 tonnes and it takes a lot to get her up on the plane (out of the water and travelling economically.) If we were to slow... More

This was a brilliant experience. - £6 for a 15 minute ride up the Jurassic Coast seeing the impressive geological sights along the way. Mid morning there was no queue which is clearly the time to go. Low scoring reviews puzzle me - yes there is no commentary but a) you couldn't have one with the noise of the boat... More

So a reasonable price for a 15 min trip around to durdledoor and back. Kids loved it and thought it was fun but a shame there wasn't at least some commentary. The captain could have slowed down a bit for pictures at durdledoor too. Overall fun and exciting though. ps we got there early (9:30) and didn't have to queue... More

Thanks for your review, we would love to be able to share our knowledge of the coast with you but engine noise prevents any commentary. I also understand that people would like to see more of Durdle Door and that is why we now offer private charters. Unfortunately if we were to slow down at Durdle Door then we would... More
